    To Pinnacle DV500+ users.
    Has any user come across any unusual, perhaps intermittent, incorrect hue
    output?
    My system will produce colour bars as below,then correct itself, normall
    only once a session.

    Would like to know what other users may have discovered to correct the
    problem.
    TIA

    captured using Pinnacle DVTOOLS.
    Using Premiere, it is only ever seen on the monitor connected to the
    breakout.
    Pinnacle have made the usual suggestion re latest drivers but this problem
    still persists.

    That looks like green is missing completely, so it may be a
    hardware problem (eg a microscopic fracture on the circuit
    board or even within a chip on the card). Next time it happens,
    try flexing the card slightly - if the problem corrects itself, that's
    what's wrong. Often this kind of problem is temperature
    dependent (known as 'warm-up faults'). If you're lucky, and
    the problem only occurs when the system is cold, just let it
    warm up for 5 minutes before you do any work. If it's the
    other way round, you're probably looking at a replacement
    card, unfortunately.

    Interestingly this feature occurs typically once a session and toward the
    beginning of the session (within 15 mins) and then will not repeat. I get
    the feeling I once effected a correction by running DVtools and then back to
    Premiere.
